CITY TETHERS' IMIITE
The old-time style or custom of
"catch as catch can" In school teach
ing has played out. There is

along the line and today modern

A CONVENT HOME FOR LITTLE GIRLS ANO Y0UN6
MDIES CONDUCTED BY THE URSULINE SISTERS
The curriculum discipline and board embrace all those features
that make it in the truest tense a convent and a home. The aim
of its teachers it not only to give their pupils that virtuous and
refined education for which the Ursulines are noted in both conti-
nents but also to make them useful members of any society to
which their duties in life may destine them. The New Annex
contains all modern improvements cistern and city water.
Situated about a mile from town on an elevation'that catches
all the health-giving breeze from the'Gulf of Mexico; surrounded
by spacious lawns on which most ample opportunity is given for
open air recreations that tend to physical development. A well
trained mind a soul refined by virtuous environments and a healthy
physique are the result of an education in the Convent Home of
Villa Maria. -
Painting Elocution and Music are given Special attention. In
the latter department the "Virgil Clavier System" is taught by com-
petent teachers. Terms reasonable but always in advance.
For catalogues and further particulars address

Don't criticize tha walks of your
